So last night wasn’t as bad as expected. Purdue made a game of it, for three quarters at least, and wasn’t blown out like many expected. There was some promise that if the effort could be replicated it could mean some wins in the future. With Southern Illinois, Iowa, and Illinois coming up in the next three games it is not beyond the realm of imagination that Purdue could beat any of those three.
That’s getting ahead of ourselves, however. Here are some of the best tweets from last night.

Touchdown Purdue. This, right here, is the Big Ten's high-water mark of the season to date.— Pat Forde (@YahooForde) September 14, 2014
Right now, #Purdue is carrying the flag for the #B1G— mike carmin (@carminjc) September 14, 2014
Was just told they are talking about September 13 1997 on the radio. I got chills thinking about that, it's been so long since we were good.— Paul Branham (@boilerpaulie) September 14, 2014
@HammerAndRails "announcers-first adversity of the season" because the tutors did everything difficult for them.— Bradley Hack (@boilerhack) September 14, 2014
#Purdue might just save the entire #B1G West from Premier League style relegation down to the MAC— Paul M. Banks (@PaulMBanks) September 14, 2014
Checking the scores, and good news! Purdue's looking good for it's annual moral victory/victories over Notre Dame and/or OSU.— The Only Colors (@TheOnlyColors) September 14, 2014
This is why we can't have nice things— Michael Henry (@therailroadtie) September 14, 2014
Twitter has classified me Tweeting #fireshoop as spam or something, it won't let me any more.— Michael Harvath (@BoilerBandsman) September 14, 2014
Now with a capable QB, the hope is that Purdue can slowly fix some of the other issues with this team. Now, have to go home and beat SIU.— Eric Gardner (@Gardner_247) September 14, 2014
Off the grid yesterday, but here's two observations I have from yesterday. 1. Purdue played balls to the wall but still needs more talent.— Riles (@Riles23) September 14, 2014
I think Tom Hammond may want to call his doctor. He has had a 4-hour erection.— Travis Miller (@HammerAndRails) September 14, 2014
